What are the benefits of outsourcing IT projects? You might be surprised to learn that even companies with full-time, in-house IT staff sometimes choose to outsource specific projects. Perhaps it’s a large-scale undertaking with a short turnaround time that would simply be too taxing for the internal team to complete while performing their day-to-day jobs. Or, it might be something that requires a special skill set to build that is not available internally or needed once the build is complete. Whatever the reasons, there are many instances where outsourcing an IT project makes good sense.
One of our newer clients is a perfect example. They are part of a global network of companies headquartered out of Germany. As such, their overall IT needs are managed through their corporate office. However, the U.S. team still has needs that aren’t met by corporate: service and support of local projects, maintenance of licenses, equipment expansions, and expert consulting services. When their team lacks the time or expertise, or when they simply need additional resources for a project, IT Radix steps in to fill the void.
